All certified interpreters will need to submit online two applications for renewal of their credential (one per each two-year cycle), which require uploading documentation of continuing education, and pay applicable fees at least one month before the renewal of the credential is due. Application review process takes four-eight (4-8) weeks from the date of submission. CCHI reserves the right to charge fees for late submission. If you submitted the renewal application in fewer than 30 days before expiration, CCHI will charge a $20 late fee.
When a certifcation credential is renewed for an additional period of four years, the certification renewal date will be four years from the date the certifcation credential was initially awarded regardless of when the renewal application is submitted. The updated certificate will be emailed within four weeks of the current credential expiration, regardless of when the application is accepted.
If a Core Certification Healthcare Interpreter™ or Certified Healthcare Interpreter™ certificant does not submit their renewal applications before expiration of the credential, they will be automatically removed from CCHI’s national registry of certified interpreters, and will need to retest.
